The Silent Musician : Why Conducting Matters Paperback / softback



* A Financial Times Book of the Year *'What does a conductor do?

It may be a favourite joke among the musicians in an orchestra, but Wigglesworth wants to find a more thoughtful answer.

Avoiding jargon, he analyses what he has discovered during 30 years in the job.' Financial Times, Books of the Year A conductor is one of classical music's most recognisable but misunderstood figures, attracting so many questions:'Surely orchestras can play perfectly well without you? ''Do you really make any difference to the performance?''Are the musicians even watching you?'The Silent Musician is not a manual for conductors, nor a history of conducting.

It is for all who wonder what conductors actually do, and why they matter.
